STATEHOUSE (Dec. 20, 2018) – State Rep. Bruce Borders (R-Jasonville) encourages students who want to learn more about state government to participate in the Indiana House Page Program during the 2019 legislative session.

According to Borders, those who are between the ages of 13 to 18 can spend a day at the Statehouse in Indianapolis helping staff and local legislators, touring government offices, and learning about the legislative process.

“The page program at the Statehouse is a wonderful opportunity for school-aged children to learn about the legislative process,” Borders said. “I encourage young people to participate in this unique, hands-on experience where they will interact with staff and legislators.”

Borders said student pages receive an excused absence from school and groups can participate together. For more information and to sign up, visit www.indianahouserepublicans.com/pageprogram or call 800-382-9841.

The 2019 legislative session begins Thursday, Jan. 3, and must conclude by April 30.
